FloPlast Flo-Fit Elbow 22mm Pack of 5
Ideal for my rainwater system
Having used threaded elbows previously I found these FLOFIT elbows quick and easy to use, the simple collar system makes it easy to dismount as well, not like some of the other types.
It was a shame the corresponding pipe inserts were not in stock considering they are not required with copper you would think stock would exceed elbows, albeit one elbow equals two inserts. Perhaps a human brain is required instead of relying on a computer.
Luckily for me I had leftover items from my old threaded purchase.

I too bought a selection of these for connecting copper a couple of years ago. Recently checking after finding a leak, I see all leaked to some extent. And trying to get them off in a confined space was a nightmare... I had to saw them off eventually. Definitley not recommended for copper pipe.

I bought a selection of these - straight couplings and elbows by mistake (wanted speedfit) and every one leaked when connecting to copper - seemed OK when using plastic with the inserts. The copper pipe has to be perfectly round & clean - not always possible in confined spaces. Used Speedfit in the same places - no leaks at all.
Its not always practical to leave floors up & holes in walls to see if they do leak - fortunately I was able to and was glad I did when I discovered the leaks!! Unfortunately, I can't recommend these - spend the extra & get speedfit. All unopened ones returned!
